To provide a comprehensive counseling program that addresses the academic, career, and personal/social development of all students.

We believe that all students have the ability to achieve their maximum personal and academic potential.
We believe that all students have the right to participate in a school counseling program that considers all students ethnic, cultural, racial, and developmental differences (including gender, identity, orientation and ability).
We believe that all students should have access to full-time support staff, including school counselors and social workers, and that all students should receive needs based supportive services, including prevention and intervention, based around specific, developmental competencies.
We believe that our school counseling program should be collaborative in nature with other school, parent/guardian and community representatives and should be data driven.
We believe that school counselors should abide by the professional ethics as advocated by the American School Counselor Association and that professional development is key in maintaining a quality school counseling program.
